    What sort of ship is it? Looks like perhaps a fishing trawler. Some information about it would be nice as it is such a beautiful model.

    Impressive detail! Great model.
  6. Whoopsie. Any sharp eyes notice the three empty deadeyes? I forgot 3 of the main topmast backstays!!!. easy to fix anyway.
  7. At last I have finished the @#$%^^&&* ratlines on the Granado. Gosh is that a tedious job! I am puzzled as to why the instructions (this is the JoTiKa kit) have you do the ratlines in light thread and then stain with India ink. Why not just do them in black to begin with? Next the crowsfeet and then the yards and running rigging and this 10 year build will finally end.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
